It takes me a while to get photos and recipes up. I think I currently have about fifteen recipes waiting to be shared. A couple of weeks ago I got a new camera, so the recipes I have waiting are divided into pre and post new camera. This flank steak with chimichurri sauce was shot with my old camera. In comparison to my new photos, I’m so disappointed. However, this is a delicious recipe and I will not let photos get in the way of sharing it.

New Camera

I spent a good bit of time looking into cameras. I asked multiple photographers whose work I respect about what camera(s) they use, then looked up reviews and comparisons of their recommendations.  After extensive research, I decided on a Canon EOS 6D. I thought it would give me better clarity and colors, but wasn’t positive. Well, it does. Y’all, it’s amazing. I need to step up my photography game to become worthy of this thing. I’m sure I’ll chat more about my camera and comparisons later, but for now, just know that this flank steak is even more delicious than my old camera shows.

Chimichurri Sauce

Right after my husband and I were married, we were introduced to flank steak. It instantly became one of our favorite meats to grill. We have it with all types of toppings which pair well, but none quite as well as chimichurri sauce. This sauce is flavorful and refreshing. I firmly believe that chimichurri to flank steak is like jelly to peanut butter. They were made to go together. Not only is chimichurri delicious, but it’s super easy to make, and just can’t be beat.

This flank steak with chimichurri sauce is a grilling staple in our house. During grilling season, meaning anytime it’s not raining or snowing, we have it multiple times. In our house, we prefer for steak to be prepared medium-rare, but obviously you can cook it to your desired level. Cook’s Illustrated has a good chart of meat temperatures you can use for reference.
